Preventing Pinterest “pinning” of your content

While many people are happy when images from their websites get “pinned” on Pinterest, there are many times that you might not be so pleased. You may have a need to prevent images from being shared for copyright or similar reasons, or simply not want the extra website traffic.

Thankfully, you can stop this with the addition of a simple HTML META tag. Also, if you already use CloudFlare, they can add it for you at runtime!


<meta name="pinterest" content="nopin" />
